Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have mailbox in gmail, I found I can't open the gmail.com in linux using socks5 proxy.But it works well in windows using the same proxy. Thunderbird works well in windows,but cannot work in linux as I configure them in the same way. Did I miss anything?
I have the same problem, I installed Mozilla Firefox and i can reach the Internet when I use Debian as operating system (I am using it now) but I can not open my gmail account.
I have dual boot on my computer and when I turn to Windows I can read gmail.
I have a proxy server, and I use it for both OS, Debian and Windows.......
It is very strange for me and I can not see any solution.
I have no trouble using Gmail with Firefox. Of course I do not use a proxy other than Privoxy on occassion.
Why are you using a Sock5 proxy? Are you using the Tor network?
I have no problem checking my Gmail account using Kmail but have never been able to use it to send mail. To send mail I use my Yahoo account.
I have tried both ports 465 and 587, and even made sure Guarddog allowed those ports so go figure. Thunderbird is wacko on my system it won't even allow me to setup an email account, every time I enter the pop mail address it says invalid host name.
